Baby, We Won’t Drive Our Cars: The Future Of Automotive Transportation

“Transportation tech is not only changing how we get from A to B, it’s fundamentally altering the underlying infrastructure of our cities.”

This observation led to several bold predictions on what the future of transportation holds in store. Here’s a list of the Top 5:
1. Uber will eventually build a centrally-controlled, all-electric, autonomous vehicle fleet
2. New modes of transit with dynamic routing will reduce overall vehicle ownership and alter urban development patterns
3. Gas stations will disappear due to reduced vehicle ownership and electrification, forcing a restructuring of our gas distribution system
4. The commercial parking industry will consolidate and decline, disrupted by on-demand parking models like ZIRX that aggregate demand
5. Connected car startups will bring increasing amounts of vehicle data online leading to safer, cheaper, and more efficient transportation
